ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effort of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) of the U.S. Department of Energy to improve cement integrity in deepwater applications. It provides overview of the NETL's three projects which are designed to monitor and enhance cement integrity in deepwater environments. It also mentions the challenges associated with deepwater cementing and the advantage of using the reverse circulation primary cementing (RCPC).
